Yann Novak and Robert Crouch are sound and visual artists living and working in Los Angeles. Their practice incorporates field recordings, photography, and video as tools to investigate the relationship between site and subject. Through the digital manipulation of these sound and image files, Novak transforms these documents of personal experiences into abstracted impressions of the original subject. Crouch uses a combination of digital processing and modular synthesis to further abstract their subject matter.
Their current work explores the relationship between contemporary art making practices and the historical tradition of romantic landscape painting. Their installations and performances have been presented at the AxS Festival, Pasadena; California Museum of Photography, Riverside; Garboushian Gallery, Beverly Hills; Highways Performance Space, Santa Monica; LACMA, Los Angeles; Pøst, Los Angeles, Tanya Bonakdar Gallery, New York and others.
